Gale is a mathematics and philosophy student at the University of Toronto. He has been working with children of all ages for more than five years, and has taught math, science and English as a private tutor for over three years. Gale is a former debate team captain and DECA champion, and spent a great deal of time coaching high school students in those competitions. Mathematics and the sciences are just a few of Gale’s many areas of interest; he loves to read novels (as long they’re older than fifty), play tennis and listen to music of all kinds.
Gale has always loved to teach, so he started working with children in early high school: first as a swim instructor, then as a teacher’s assistant, and finally as a private tutor. He has taught students as young as four, and as old as seventeen. Gale is very comfortable with kids, and knows how to make academic material as fun and engaging as it can be. Whether a child is struggling with a subject, or trying to excel in it, he can help them reach their academic goals.
Katherine is completing her bachelor’s degree in math and physics from McGill University. She has attended both English and French educational institutions throughout her academic career. These include her studies at a French high school, Pensionnat Saint-Nom-de-Marie, as well as Vanier College to complete a DEC in Pure and Applied Science. In both of these schools, she consistently made the honour roll and excelled academically. Her most notable achievements would mostly be seen in her college years. There, she was appointed as a teaching assistant for several of the upper level mathematics courses where she helped students in courses ranging from Calculus to Linear Algebra. It was also during this time that she became a research assistant for her professor’s biology course and lead a team of other students through an experiment whose paper was eventually published in the Vanier Sigma Science Journal.
Despite being very occupied with her studies during her academic career, she began to take an interest in tutoring others a long time ago. As she went through high school, she saw her classmates struggle in subjects she both enjoyed and did so well in. It was then, at the age of 15, that she decided to start helping them after school. This is something that she would for years to come and now, at the age of 20, she continues to tutor, utilizing her vast knowledge and great experience in this field to help her students.

Mohammed has a Bachelor’s degree in Industrial Engineering and now works as a project manager for McGill University where he manages healthcare-related projects. Academically, he’s excelled in Mathematics and Sciences throughout high school, CEGEP and University. He has deep fondness of Economics and International Policy. His all time favourite book is Ray Dalio’s The Changing World Order.
Mohammed would like to one day switch from working in the corporate world to teaching full time at the University level. After completing the entire “standard” academic system, Mohammed realized that there’s a huge gap in the teaching field. Students are not inspired to think big and most of them do not enjoy the learning process. Because of this, Mohammed made it his objective to inspire his students, develop a deep interest in learning and push students to have high ambitions, no matter their academic level. In addition to his day job, Mohammed trains professionals for the PMP (Project Management Professional) examination and provides career advising to students. He enjoys travelling, boxing, grabbing a cappuccino at a great cafe and learning all that there is to know about the economy.
